Cabrera homers twice as Tigers earn 1st win against Yankees, 10-7

Post  Admin on Sun Apr 03, 2011 5:50 pm

Miguel Cabrera hit a pair of two-run homers, Brennan Boesch had a two-run shot among four hits and four RBIs, and the Detroit Tigers outslugged the New York Yankees, 10-7 to earn their first win of the 2011 season.

Boesch matched a career high with four hits, scored four runs and had a sacrifice fly as the Tigers rebounded from a 10-6 loss Saturday without No. 3 hitter Magglio Ordonez in the lineup. The right fielder sat because his surgically repaired ankle was sore.

Max Scherzer outlasted Phil Hughes (0-1) in a matchup of young stars with neither getting a perfect inning in their season debuts. Scherzer (1-0) gave up six runs and nine hits in five innings—after allowing 20 earned runs in 17 1-3 innings this spring. The first of only two 1-2-3 innings didn’t come until Detroit reliever Phil Coke retired three in a row in the sixth.

Jose Valverde pitched the ninth and retired Posada with a popup to center with a runner on for his first save.
